It’s been a LONG time.
We visited a hardware store that carries some interesting “antiques”… like this commemorative plate.
And this odd little chicken.
We were picking out knobs and pulls for the kitchen. It’s amazing how crazy some of the hardware gets.
We did not pick any of these.
That night, a friend and I saw a play at the local playhouse. We had pretty good seats. I have mixed feelings about the actual “play,” which seemed more like we were being read a woman’s actual diary on stage.
The kids have found the fun little “jail” in the staircase.
And my son finally emptied (most) of the boxes in his room, with TONS of help from my awesome parents.
We got a new bed.
The kids played Monopoly. They played the same game over a series of days.
Last night we watched the local fireworks from a friend’s front yard, catching up with people I adore that I haven’t seen in far too long.
This morning, my husband put up some art on the wall.
And finally… we got some random candy left on our doormat last night. So odd.
This weekend we’ll celebrate the 4th with family. Happy Independence Day, Americans. Let’s get our act together, shall we?
